Game Bits: New AI Used To Create Computer Code. Fortnite Will Not Appear On Apple App Sites Any Time Soon

AI Can Create Computer Code

A new artificial intelligence program is helping to create computer code by listening to natural speech – including creating your own video games.
The OpenAI Codex beta supports a dozen coding languages. Nevertheless, one of the coolest features is the ability to create Javascript video games with just a few natural language instructions, as PC Gamer reported.
As OpenAI Codex’s website says:

“Proficient in more than a dozen programming languages, Codex can now interpret simple commands in natural language and execute them on the user’s behalf—making it possible to build a natural language interface to existing applications.”

By making coding simple, this type of code could make coding accessible to many more people – not only because it makes coding simple, but also because it is so simple. With OpenAI Codex, you can create your own programs using only your voice. It’s only a beta at the moment, but it has a huge potential to change coding.
We’re just now wondering what kinds of games could be created using this technology. Would they be simple 2D point-and-click adventures? Or is there potential for more complex games to be made here? The possibilities for the future are endless!

NO Fortnite App On Apple App Sites

Due to the ongoing legal battle, Epic Games CEO Tim Sweeney revealed that Fortnite could be exiled for at least five years by Apple.
Epic Games filed a lawsuit against Apple regarding in-app purchase methods outside of those available on the App Store last year. Honestly, this is a bloated back and forth legal battle that won’t end any time soon.
During the legal dispute, Epic Games CEO Tim Sweeney published a series of communication documents between Epic and Apple. Sweeny claims that Apple has broken its promise.
Sweeny also claimed that Epic Games has allegedly been banned from the App Store because of the legal battle. Fortnite and other Epic Games software could be permanently removed from the App Store.
According to reports, Apple will not consider Epic Games software for the App Store while Epic Games appeals the court case.
Epic’s CEO tweeted late yesterday that Fortnite would be banned from Apple’s ecosystem until all court appeals are exhausted, which could take more than five years.
How do you feel about the Epic Games vs. Apple legal battle? Let us know on our social media channels.
